This started as coconut Cocada, a 'zaar recipe from Sharon123, but here in the tropics it's difficult to get candies to set, and so my results soon became the base for a new recipe. This is a sweet, dense, coconut bar full of flavour and filling enough to serve as a desert in itself.
A low sugar, subtle little cookie with added health benefits: sesame, coconut, sunflower seeds and oats make this treat good for you!
The recipe for this cookie developed from an idea for coconut halvah which became a need for a tea time treat. Now it's a favourite.
The preparation time does not include chilling times.
